Katy says: Catching up on the blog posts I may have missed due to an increased workload, I was surprised to see that Vcrisis, Alek Boyd’s hard-hitting website, has gone on a temporary hiatus. Alek has never struck me as someone who minces his words, yet his parting editorial, while clearly heartfelt, is strangely vague.
Love him or hate him, Alek always had an opinion, and his website occupied an important role in the opposition blogosphere. Let’s hope that whatever funk prompted Alek to shut down is only temporary. Even though I often didn’t agree with his views or his language, his no-nonsense, investigative blog was a must-read for me. He will be sorely missed.Caracas Chronicles is 100% reader-supported.
